Still preferred it when Matt Lucas played Goerge Doors.

It was never as good as it used to be though so its not a huge shock

Digital Spy:

Shooting Stars has been dropped by the BBC.

The surreal panel show, fronted by Bob Mortimer and Vic Reeves, has not been recommissioned for a ninth series.

Announcing the news on Twitter, Mortimer told fans: "BBC have just cancelled Shooting Stars."

A BBC spokesperson confirmed: "In future there will be less space on BBC Two for comedy/entertainment panel shows so sadly Shooting Stars won't be returning.

"We'd like to thank Vic and Bob for everything they've brought to the channel over the years."

The programme's last six-episode series ran from August this year.

Shooting Stars has steadily lost viewers since its triumphant return to BBC Two in 2009 following a seven-year break.

During the revival, show favourite Matt Lucas stepped down from his role as scorer George Dawes, being replaced by Angelos Epithemiou (Renton Skinner).
Some are born great, some achieve greatness and some have greatness thrust upon them.

The rest of us are a bit crap.

No more Ulrika. Image But I wont miss that AH that took over from ML/George Dawes, he was not in the least funny or amusing.
